POTUS to Ilhan Omar: Go Back to Somalia!

President Donald Trump Sunday fired off a few Tweets directed at “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen,” clearly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia) instructing her to “go back” to her homeland and fix its own issues before criticizing the United States.

Who: POTUS to Ilhan Omar.

What: “So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run,” Trump Tweeted. “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

When: Sunday morning.

Where: Twitter.

Why It Matters: Omar has been in the news this week for her criticism of the United States, which she called “unjust,” and compared to her homeland of Somalia, which has been engulfed in a Civil War since the early 1990’s. She came to America – who graciously took her in – as a child. She was eviscerated by Tucker Carlson on his primetime show for her callous remarks.

“Ilhan Omar is living proof that the way we practice immigration has become dangerous to this country,” Carlson said. “A system designed to strengthen America is instead undermining it. Some of the very people we try hardest to help have come to hate us passionately. Maybe that’s our fault for asking too little of our immigrants. We aren’t self-confident enough to make them assimilate, so they never feel fully American.”

“Or maybe the problem is deeper than that,” he continued. “Maybe we’re importing people from places whose values are simply antithetical to ours. Who knows that the problem is? But there is a problem, and whatever the cause, this cannot continue. It’s not sustainable. No country can import large numbers of people who hate it and expect to survive. The Romans were the last to try that, with predictable results.”
